If you don’t know what Cheggit was, it was the current biggest porno tracker in the world. In the past, there was PureTNA and Empornium, and both of those went down at the same time. At which time, everyone migrated to the then 3rd biggest – Cheggit. The influx of disembodied users from the two other sides mostly ended up going to Cheggit, and it ended up the biggest porno tracker in the world.
Cheggit has been supposedly under technical maintenance for the past week, but it turns out the Admins were just slapping one another’s cocks together deciding what to do in light of all the legal actions in wake of MegaUpload.
If you hadn’t heard – most file sharing sites have went dark after MegaUpload went down, in fear of the same happening to them. Others, they removed hundreds of thousands of files and banned thousands of users. DDLing for anime, for instance, has nearly screeched to a halt on some popular sharing sites.
Cheggit going away though… that’s a big hit. That was the biggest tracker for porn. In other words, it’s a lot like if Megaupload, Wikipedia, Twitter or Youtube were to suddenly refuse service.
You can see some smug little anti-piracy bastard gloating about it here.
Seems like most people are going to the new Empornium (hell, I didn’t even know it existed), or Deviloid. I’ve been on Deviloid for over a year and I can tell you that it’s not that great. Its search sucks and it has pretty poor peerage. Not very well presentations either. So, if you’re coming from Cheggit looking for a new home… Empornium is probably the place to go…….. again.
